What’s up Visiteurs? Long time no speak. Are you partial to a good ol’ fashioned beard. If the answers yes, then you couldn’t be in a better part of the web. Over the last couple of weeks we’ve taken some time out to try out a number of different products for the average bearded man. What’s that I hear you saying? ‘Frederick I thought you didn’t have a beard!’
Well ever since the first post I made on this blog the notion of growing one stayed in the back of my mind for a seriously long time, until finally I cracked and gave in, and my beard growth commenced. It’s a lot easier that most people think, because realistically you don’t have to do anything – you actually save time, because you don’t have to factor in your daily monotonous shave each morning. Aside from possibly narrowing your chances of landing a highly paid corporate job, there really are no major downfalls to having a long and luscious beard. And as you know, from what I wrote about all those months ago – the attention you begin to receive from the opposite sex after you have attained that elusive full beard status is literally mind boggling. There’s no way to describe it – I love this lifestyle!
Anyway enough about me. The point of this post was to tell you all about the different products available that you can apply to your beard and give you my opinion. So if you’re reading this, and you’re one of the lucky ones (you’ve already put in the time and effort to grow a healthy amount of facial hair) then listen up.
I’m guessing that some of you will probably no all about the various accessories that you can get your hands on, but I type this out as if you are uninitiated. It seems the most popular accessory is oil, that you rub into the hair on a daily basis to make it feel softer. I did try some of it out, and to tell you the truth, it was pretty good.
But my honest opinion, and this should be the main takeaway for you, is that using a balm was actually better. I did a bit of research, and eventually decided upon this incredible beard balm, and I can’t explain how good it made my facial hair feel. It was by far the best product at actually sculpting and controlling the hairs too. This was a big problem for me, especially in the mornings.
So that’s my advice – go for a balm. You get more bang for your buck and it usually comes in a pretty cool tin which is great for travelling. Peace out folks and see you again soon!
Or even lady in fact. Either way you’ll be glad to hear that we’ve taken some time out this week to purchase and review a host of beard grooming products. If you’ve recently grown a beard and haven’t yet taken the plunge into learning all about different accessories then you’ll most definitely learn a lot from this post. The only sad news is that it isn’t quite ready. It will be with you in a few days, so sit tight and see you around.
Hi there again my trusty visiteurs. I’ve been off the radar a bit recently but now i’m back with a vengeance aiming to bring you a whole load of blogging goodness. Now, this post may seem a bit out of place and unusual, but trust me, keep reading and eventually you’ll understand how and why this applies to you.
I don’t have many hobbies, nor a family to spend my money on. Because of this, I’m free to lavish myself in my favourite hobby – male grooming. I’ve always enjoyed looking dapper (for as long as I can remember) and a good portion of my wage is spent incredibly quickly on things like new clothes, accessories, and more recently grooming products for my ever growing beard.
In fact, a few weeks back I was doing my taxes and actually put some numbers together. Throughout this year I’ve spent an insane amount on grooming products and accessories – I really have been generous to myself.
I realised that it wouldn’t be wise for me to go on like this. But at the same time I didn’t want to compromise my style, let alone all the fun and joy I was getting out of sporting the latest fashionable clothes and styles.
There had to be some sort of solution. At the time, the thought of cutting it all out together wasn’t appealing. I was pretty lost and really had no idea what to do whatsoever.
I decided to give my accountant a call. Although it seemed a bit unorthodox to ask him for some advice on my casual expenses, I knew he was good at numbers and figured that the worst that could happen is that he wouldn’t have any suggestions for me.
Luckily he picked up there and then, and we had a good chat. He suggested that when it comes to spending money, I do so more cautiously and take my time assessing other options too. He reminded me, that whatever I’m thinking of buying, there’s almost always going to be a cheaper alternative.
I knew he couldn’t help me directly with this, as he doesn’t have a similar burning interest in fashion, but his advice alone was enough for me. Since then I’ve actually saved quite a bit of money, mainly through taking my time and thinking through each purchase before I go ahead and buy. Who would have thought that seeking the advice of my accountant in helston would be such a wise decision!
I’d like to start this brief post by saying sorry – I’m sorry we’ve been completely inactive recently. This blog was started in the hope that we would bring you consistent, interesting and cool content but so far it seems we’ve failed. We’re hoping to turn all of that around though, with some new stuff which should rock your socks off. Make sure you don’t miss it.
Hi again. Yesterday I hinted at the type of content I would be delivering for you today, and lo and behold I’ve stuck to my word. This forthcoming article is a suit of argument, or a thesis if you will, expressing my opinions on beards and in particular, how I think that having a beard generally makes you more attractive to women.
I’ll go into this in more detail shortly, but this idea got me thinking. Would it then be good of me to advise you all to start growing beards in order to help you attract women, or are beards currently attractive to women, because they are slightly unusual, and because you’re average man doesn’t have one. There’s some food for thought right there.
Anyway, back to my point. I think beards make men more attractive to women for a number of reasons. After looking around for quite some time trying to find an answer, I’ve whittled it down to two things.
(2) Secondly a beard, in almost all cases, will make it’s owner look quite a bit older. And this in turn is a great thing for young men, in their early twenties to have. It makes them instantly look older and more attractive.
Because of these two reasons, I thought to myself that I should spread the word with my brethren, and let every guy I know that doesn’t currently have a beard, that they are missing out. Then after some more thinking and deliberation, I started to think twice.
Would it really be a good idea for every guy out there to have a beard. Isn’t it possible that what makes the current contingent of men with beards attractive, is because they stand out from the crowd – they are unique, and not average. But if every guy out there had one, then they would no longer be unique or interesting, and perhaps the clean shaven man will suddenly become the one getting all the attention. Either way I hope this doesn’t happen, because I am really enjoying having a beard at the moment, and I don’t want this trend to end anytime soon!
I’ve created this blog on a bit of a whim – I think I’ve got a fair amount of experience when it comes to male grooming, and I thought, ‘why not share that with the world?’
So in this original message, I ask you to be patient with me: I don’t consider myself an expert at blogging, or writing in fact, but I’m sure with time and persistence I will get better, and the blog will begin to become more rewarding for you and me.
My very first article will be published tomorrow so come back to read it – It’s about beards and why I think every guy should have one!
